4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Really nice modern hotel - generous room size. Breakfast was made up of everything you could want - eggs, baco, sausages, muesli, fresh bread, fresh fruit, pastries etc. Art displays throughut the hotel. 15 minute walk from Karl Johans Gate. Quiet area but close to really good foodhall and Bla nightclub. Would def stay here again.

I didn't know what to expect when we arrived in Oslo but we were welcomed warmly by a lovely receptionist. Thank you! The interior of the hotel is beautiful and at the moment there is colourful artwork displayed even in the elevators! There is a variety of food and drink available for breakfast which will set you up for your... More

The Scandic Vulkan is an artsy and cosy place located a bit outside of town down in the hip and urban Gronerlokka. It's an architectural gem that is perfectly blended with its surrounding, the Vulkan area. Everywhere in the hotel, you can find great pieces of art that can be purchased. The room was well equipped with stylish furniture but... More

This is one of the best reviews I've ever read. Not only was it good PR for our city and location, but it gave a very nice and detailed description of the hotel. It was a pleasure to read! Thank you for your amazing feedback, and of course - welcome back! More

This is the best hotel in Oslo you didn't know about. It is warm and friendly due to excellent staff and the hotel and rooms are new and fresh. The best thing though is the location between the city center and exciting Grünerløkka and with the buzzing Mathallen just outside the hotel.

The hotel is situated in a relatively new complex directly beside the Mathallen (a food-oriented hall with many small restaurants and food shops) in Grünerløkka district. We were lucky to get a room on the 9th and upmost floor featuring a splendid view over parts of Oslo. The room was large and very light due to windows reaching down to... More

Scandic Vulcan is situated in the "Vulcan" center, where you find the Oslo Mathall restaurants (Oslo Food Hall) and a number of other restaurants in this small community. You also find the "Arena" in the same building as the hotel. This old Oslo industry transformed into modern architecture with all you need. Very nice park and 70 meters to the... More

We booked this as a stop over from Iceland and loved it! Great breakfast buffet, wonderful service. Clean rooms and a 5 minute walk from bus station. The bar staff downstairs were great and personable.wonderful little market behind the hotel we wished we had found sooner. Absolute must stay.

Its about 15-20 min walk all the way to the city center of Oslo, to its easy access. Also there are shopping malls, food outlets very close by to the hotel. Rooms were spacious and clean. Beds were very comfortable too. We asked for a electric kettle to heat water inside the room, they were very glad to provide one.... More
